For young children, losing privileges for short amounts of time can be very effective. One way for this to happen is by using what is called “Time-Out.” Time-Out means time away from all those fun things in a child’s life. It is a way of disciplining your child without raising your hand or your voice. Basically, Time-Out involves having your child sit in one place for a certain amount of time. You can easily see that most kids wouldn’t like Time-Out because they would rather be doing fun things (Burke & Herron, 1996, p. 40).



A. Time-Out is not an effective way of disciplining children.
B. Time-Out is an effective way of disciplining children.
C. Spanking is the least effective way of disciplining children.
D. Time-Out means sitting in one place for a certain amount of time.

Time-Out is an effective way of disciplining children.

Yes, the first two sentences provide the topic: Time-Out and present the authors opinion that they are effective. a) Is not correct because it states the opposite of the authors opinion on time-out. b) Is correct. c) Is not correct. Spanking can not be the main idea because it is not addressed in the article. d) Is not correct because this is a supporting detail, not the main idea.
